Bluray | DVD cases

Hello,
I am looking to upgrade my current bluray/dvd cases. I saw this https://www.etsy.com/listing/8129991...?ref=related-6
and wanted to know if that was expensive or about what you guys pay for something similar. Also, I am currently using white inkjet bluray Verbatim disc. Who and where can I buy plain shiny silver discs? I would like ones that have a good reputation as far as burning goes. Thank you for your help. Or https://www.etsy.com/listing/2348818...hed?ref=market

Re: Bluray | DVD cases

Those cases look nice Jeff - only I would never need 10. For my wedding clients I include 3 copies of the DVD in nice cases. Standard cases for any extras. Here are the one's I use. They are not monogramed but they are nice. They run about $15 each and you can buy in any quantity. For some reason you must open an account with them in order to be able to see pricing on their site.

I've been using these for the past couple of years. They have a magnet that holds them closed.

There are other companies that have spaces for more than two.

I came across this place which has a pretty cool burlap case. Have a few others to choose from too.

I've been using that custom DVD case from Black River Imaging for about a year and love it.

Now I combine it with a nice box to put the DVD case and USB in.

Re: Bluray | DVD cases

Thanks guys for the suggestions. One last question for you. Do you use plain silver discs or are you using the white matt Verbatim discs and printing a photo of the couple? I have found a leather case that I can have Our Wedding printed on the front. I was thinking of just burning their weddings on the plain silver disc. What are your thoughts.

The custom printed Disc that includes your Contact Info is one more opportunity to market yourself
as the B&G invariably loan the disc to their just-engaged friends

That's what the internets for, Vince :)

I had a bunch of DVDs run off that just have a nice, generic 'Our Wedding Video' on it, then my name in tiny print at the bottom.

Hey Robert, so the DVD case fits in there?

I'll let you know:) I haven't used both together yet. I've ordered them and my slide box is on back order.

I have fit the clear, thin, plastic jewel cases in the box.

The box's interior space for the DVDs is 5.25" and 7.25" which *should* be at least 1/2 an inch of space of each side for a standard jewel box. I'm not sure if the custom DVD cases from Black River Imaging are measurably larger than a typical jewel box.

Thanks Robert; I'm looking to put the ol'e plastic cases on the chopping block and go with hard printed magnetics and usb boxes. Trying to find the right combo.
